5 Fashion Buys to Make in February

February can be a tricky month to shop in. You’ve got that vacation to think about, but an unknown number of cold days ahead. When can you start shopping for spring, anyway?

Here are 5 things you can never go wrong buying in February.

A Checked Blazer

A jacket is the perfect transitional piece for February. You can rock it on top of all of your sweaters for a layered and warm look, or welcome the warm weather by pairing it with a simple undershirt. It’s a great way to start adding brighter colours into your wardrobe subtly.

Zara, $159

Colourful Stones

February is a great time to shop jewellery (because there is so much out for Valentine’s Day) and explore stones that you wouldn’t normally look at during other seasons. Icy earth-tones with some sparkle are very trendy and offer a bit of sparkle.

Panacea, $58.83

 

A Red Bag

If there was ever a month to splurge on something red, wouldn’t it be February? A red bag will hit refresh on your evening looks and add a pop of colour.

Gucci, $1,449.12

 

Dark Denim

Speaking of refresh, maybe it’s time to get a new pair of dark jeans, instead of the pairs you’ve been rocking all winter? Find a pair of dark jeans that will help you transition from heavy sweaters to lightly layered shirts in the coming months.

Rag & Bone, $195

 

Vacation Bag

About that vacation! If you’re wondering what to buy for this, splurging on luggage is always a worthy investment. This oversized bag from Gucci has us ready for a holiday in the sun.

Gucci, $1,193.10
